About this listing
The apartment is located on the top of the district Montorgueil. The district is one of the last part of Old Paris. The apartment is located in a street wich was one of three entrances to the Great Court of Miracles, described by Victor Hugo in Notre-Dame de Paris. Today district Montorgueil is probably the trendiest in Paris and includes a multitude of bars and restaurants (the delicious Frenchie !); Montorgueil Street is made of typical shops, butchers, fishmongers, bakeries and caterers. It is also a fashion shopper's paradise ! Theaters and cinemas are very close (200 m). And then, quite simply, if you put a finger on the district Montorgueil, you are exactly in the center of Paris, at the intersection of all subway lines (lines 4, 3, 1, 8, 9; it's the biggest hub for subway/RER lines in Paris), buses, and bike stations (Velib) and many places are within walking (Notre-Dame, Le Marais, Le Louvre, Pompidou Modern Art Museum, Châtelet, Galeries Lafayette, Opéra). The apartment has the distinction of being in a quiet street, allowing you to enjoy this local agitation while finding the calm in the evening. Rue du Nil (the Street) is at the moment one of the most fashionable street in Paris for French quality food (produits du terroirs).
From Chatelet-Les Halles, direct express line (RER) to Roissy-Charles de Gaulle international airport and Orly international airport (45 min)

Every single word of praise you can find in all the feedbacks is absolutely deserved.
Lovely house, lovely hosts!
Manual and François were great hosts! The house was nice, warm and charming and the breakfast (all organic) was wonderful. They provided lots of advice on where to go while in Paris and where to eat. Could't have asked for more.
The location of the apartment was great, just 2 minutes walk to the nearest Metro station and 5 minute walk down the wonderful Rue Montorgueil to another Metro that connects directly to the airports and also walking distance to central Paris.
We couldn't have asked for more gracious, generous, and accommodating hosts! The apartment was incredibly beautiful and well worth the stairs to get to. We received the kindest welcome, carrying our bags up the stairs for us and giving a thorough tour of the apartment and its amenities. The location in the 2nd arrondissement, so close to the metro station and just off of a pedestrian mall full of bars and restaurants, was really convenient. When we needed to do laundry, Manuel patiently took the time to explain how to use the foreign (to us) washer and dryer. Breakfasts were luxurious and tasty, catered to our preferences. When one of us was a little under the weather during our stay, Françiose and Manuel were genuinely concerned, offering to call a doctor or anything else we could need. I simply couldn't recommend staying with them more highly. Our time in Paris would have paled in comparison had we stayed someplace else.
Paris is a beautiful and magical place, and for my daughter and I, the very best part of it all was staying with Manuel and Francois They are kind, their hospitality is beyond compare, their home is immaculate and very well appointed, and we felt like honored guests. They took our luggage up all those steps, and walked us out to find a taxi on a busy morning the day we left, which is the only reason we made our flight. Manuel's organic breakfasts are a prize; it was so special to have warm bread rushed up from the bakery. When he learned I was lactose intolerant, they ran out to get soy for me. At the end of the day we looked forward to coming "home" and telling them about our day. My gosh, I can't say enough good things about these hosts. I feel like we have made friends for life. If I ever am lucky enough to go to Paris again, I will want to be lucky enough to stay again with Manuel and Francois. Merci, Merci for everything.
Jederzeit wieder! Absolut empfehlenswert. Die Beschreibung ist nicht übertrieben: "our apartment is a haven in the heart of Paris". Hier wohnt man zwar mitten drin in Paris, wo die Pariser selbst arbeiten, wohnen und einkaufen und essen gehen. Und trotzdem ist es sehr ruhig und chillig.
Francois und Manuel sind sehr herzliche und fürsorgliche Gastgeber, die einen mit tollen Tipps zu Essen und Sehenswürdigkeiten versorgen.
Für uns steht jetzt schon fest wo wir bei unserem nächsten längeren Aufenthalt in Paris verweilen werden.
Amazing hosts! Great guides to the best; things to do, see and eat in Paris! A charming, fun and impeccable apartment that really creates a true Parisian experience. The organic breakfast was delicious and a great way to start our day. I can not say enough good things about our stay!
Manoel e François sabem como fazer a gente se sentir em casa.
Super atenciosos, cheios de dicas bacanas e responsáveis por um café da manhã de cinema!
Começar o dia assim faz Paris ser ainda (website hidden) certeza, nossa estadia ficou ainda melhor por conta deles.
